Sold on Lexus, have an LS 430 and love it so bought a 97 ES 300 for my daughters to drive. Love the classy look, safety, reliabilty and feel of a Lexus. It will spoil you forever. The V-6 has tons of power. Comfortable seats with nice quality leather. Very quiet and smooth. Get compliments on the white/tan appearance, looks like a new car. Trust this car to get my daughters home, enough said.
Heated seats, comfortable and soft leather, quietness, torque of the V-6 engine, exterior looks, interior comfort, solid reliability.
Radio displays fade, common problem. Seats could be warmer - maybe a dial instead of a button. Would love to see mpg over 30.
